AUBURN, Ala. – This weekend at the final two regular-season home games, Auburn soccer will be helping raise money for multiple sclerosis research in its first-ever “Kicks for MS” campaign.
This Friday against Arkansas and Sunday against Vanderbilt, fans in attendance will be able to donate money of any size to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA). The team is raising money to help further awareness and funding to support individuals with MS. Funds raised support the many vital programs and services offered by the MSAA.
MS has become more prevalent in the United State recently as approximately 400,000 individuals have been diagnosed in the country with females more likely to have MS than men.
The “Kicks for MS” campaign hits very close to home for the Auburn Soccer community as alums Ashley Eason Stamper (’05) and Trudi James Hawke (’97) were both diagnosed with MS after their time on The Plains.
If you would like to make a donation, you can follow the link below to the Auburn Soccer page and then follow the prompts to donate. For more information about the MSAA, you can visit their website at MyMSAA.org. The donation page will remain active until Nov. 4.
Those at this weekend’s matches will also be able to donate on-site as there will be information at the marketing table just inside the front gate at the AU Soccer Complex.
Friday’s match with Arkansas is set for 7 p.m., while Sunday’s match against Vanderbilt will begin at 2 p.m. Both matches will be played at the AU Soccer Complex on campus.
